Marlene and I are getting ready to head to Townsend, TN. This is one of the motorcycle mecca’s of the United States. Bikers come from all over the US to ride “The Tail of the Dragon” located here. What’s the big deal you might ask? 318 curves in 11 miles! Some of the most beautiful and challenging roads in our great country. I’ve never been here before, so I am super pumped to see it.
So why are we going there, besides the obvious? This is a mission’s trip called, “Light in the Smokies” and we are very excited about it! Our local group is heading there to simply set up 2 bikers rest areas along the way to offer free water and sunscreen. Jesus taught us in Matthew 11:29, Come to me all ye who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. All day on Friday, and most of the day Saturday we will be working at one of two areas. US129 Dragon Harley Davidson or Wings R’ Us restaurant parking lots.
I’m taking along a brand new Nikon point and shoot camera that should be a lot of fun to use. Hopefully Marlene can get some action shots as we are riding down the road. I want to document the trip best way I can, but not miss out on the purpose of our trip.
Would you be praying for us and our entire team as we initiate conversations? Pray the Lord would allow us “divine appointments” with people that may not know Him? We are super stoked about this weekend. Can’t wait to tell you all that the Lord does!
